Enrico Caruso. The Lost Chord. Poem by Adelaide Proctor set to music by Sir Arthur Sullivan. Originally recorded April 29, 1912 with orchestral accompaniment but this recording is a 1933 electrical re-creation by RCA/HMV with an electrically recorded organ substituted for the orchestra. Herbert Dawson at the keyboards with his part recorded on November 3, 1933 in Kingsway Hall, London. Think what you may of this, but it's an interesting bit of recording history. RCA Victor No. 8806.
